Sneak Peek @ Christmas

Some years are "Bah-Humbug" years for me.  This year is not one of them. 
It all started when the Grands were here, bored with the same outdated, out-grown toys.   They wandered down the basement where the sewing machine is kept, and decided that was the new toy to play with, so I got out some felt scraps and let them design their own "ugly dolls".   I'm sorry I don't have a photo of that.    When they left, I got to thinking how fun it would be to make some out of that exquisite minkie fabric, so I made a prototype.    Upon finishing, John asked me if the face was modeled on Phyllis Diller before or after her plastic surgery.    Back to the drawing board.  After I made some more, and decided the faces would never do for 8, 10, and 11 year olds (too juvenile),  I called in The Help.   (Jonathon is my Go-To Guy when I need advice.)  He came up with some real winners, and the fun began.   So here is the sneak peek.    Aspen, Cedar and Olive might design their own faces, but I get the last vote about the fabric and the shape.   I guess some years get to have surprises, and some years you find out what you're getting ahead of time.  (Remember when you used to find the hidden Christmas gifts, and open them all, then rewrap them, thinking Santa would never know?   Hah!
Here's where the fun begins.   Since I have made so many prototypes with the more juvenile faces on them, there are some spares.  If you want one, you can leave a comment, and on December 12th, I'll use the random generator to pick a winner.   (Remember, these are "homemade", not professional.)  All you have to do is tell me which face you like best.  Happy Holidays to you and yours.   Let the fun begin.
